Lucy lives in the village of Taraganga, located in the Garu-Tempane district of northern Ghana. In recent years, Lucy has experienced increasing challenges due to the climate. There is less rainfall during the rainy season, and the actual rain periods are also declining. This is a major problem as most of the people in Northern Ghana are dependent on rain for farming and ordinary water supply. In addition, many families face major challenges with poverty and disease that help reduce their capacity to adapt to climate change. Fortunately, CARE has been able to help Lucy and her village through their climate adaptation project ALP – Adaptation Learning Program.
